Jerk Chicken Sliders with Gorgonzola Slaw

Jerk Chicken Sliders with Gorgonzola Slaw

Yes – Jerk Chicken Sliders. I know, I know, it’s another slider. Don’t judge a girl for having a million and one ways to use slider buns. Just listen. Or, read.

These. I just can’t even begin.

This combination so perfectly marries together that will make you roll your eyes in the back of your head and say OMG. Even if you’re not a slaw fan, I promise you, these will change your mind. I cannot tell you how.many.people I have converted from picky asses, hates everything, to “what was that I just ate? Um, I could have SWORN I don’t like slaw (or whatever it is that I got them to try). 

I won’t misrepresent here; I have definitely told a fib or two. But I HAD to. Finicky, picky ass people are usually very hard to persuade. So, I tell them a little white lie, they aren’t scared so they go for it.

Then I tell them the truth about what they just tried, and they first give me a dirty look, but then just give in and say they want me to get them to try something else. 


Ok, maybe I can. They’re beyond fantastic – Oh, wait, is so yesterday? Or was it so 2012, or maybe so 2011? Hell, I have no idea.

I can’ t keep up. I’m now 38; to my kids I’m sure I seem ancient.

I’ve made these many times, but never posted them. I have a big, fat list of things to re-make, re-shoot, re-do, re-everything, etc. The list keeps growing because I keep cooking.

I have tried to make homemade jerk sauce, but so far I haven’t had much success; I get almost there but there’s some tweaking to do. I’ll keep trying, but for now these turn out beautifully with bottled Jerk sauce and slow cooked chicken.


Oh, and of course, arugula. These are so simple to make.

And BTW, the Gorgonzola takes them way over the top. Do not leave that stuff out. Trust me?
